Re: REFENO Regatta-Recife to Fernando do Norhona

I was somehow misreading the database. There are actually 70 boats in the regatta split over 9 classes.

The leading boat at 09:42 14 Oct. is SESSENTAO

I will post an update later today.

Re: REFENO Regatta-Recife to Fernando do Norhona

We were there for the start ,what a great day! wind switched around to the south east which was good as it had been more east the last few days . We were anchored beside Sessentao as they could not get into Cabanga due to there draught what a beautiful yacht. There have been a few casualties .One boken mast on a cat ,one broken rudder on a dragon fly trimaran ,failed rudder on a cat and a non start with engine problems.

Re: REFENO Regatta-Recife to Fernando do Norhona

I must say I am somewhat surprised to find that only a fraction of the regatta participants switched on their SPOTīs during the race,in spite of the fact that the rules of the regatta stated that anyone switching off their SPOTīs would be disqualified. Ah well,thatīs Brazil for you!!

Here are the REAL results : Regata Internacional Recife - Fernando de Noronha

Re: REFENO Regatta-Recife to Fernando do Norhona

I have prepared a useful list of all the tracks,minute by minute,for the participants with SPOTīs activated during the race.

In order to select and display them,you should download OpenCPN as well
as the list of some 70 .gpx Track files:

https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B3...JkcGhldWs/edit

I also attach the optimized route .kml file based on the prevailing winds during the race.
